Agents, stand out by taking the strategic approach to sharing content on social media

To be successful with social media marketing, you should aim to create a good balance between promoting your own estate or letting agency business, and engaging with others. It’s all too easy to get carried away and side-tracked, and without structure, this can lead to sharing too many self-promoting posts which can prevent engagement and conversations.

The 4-1-1 rule can complement your social media marketing strategy, and provide a strategic approach to sharing information and engaging with others on your social media channels.

How does the 4-1-1 rule work?

Firstly, you should identify the main influencers in the industry that are relevant to your target audience(s). Then, follow the 4-1-1 rule with six pieces of content as follows:

Four: Share four pieces of content from your influencer list (relevant to your target audience). For example if you’re a lettings agency, you may decide to share one piece of content relevant to landlords, one piece of content relevant to tenants, and two pieces of content related to industry news. You can then change how many pieces of content you share for your different target audiences with the next four pieces of content you share.
One: Share one piece of your own content (informational/educational), for example a blog post.
One: Share one piece of content that’s sales related, promotional, press releases, or anything that relates to your company.

Following this rule can help keep you on track, and prevent you from loosing sight of what you’ve shared and posted. It’s also a good method for creating a balance between self-promoting posts and other posts, so you can show value to your followers, stand out from the crowd, and build your company/brand awareness.
